About This Activity

Our Annual Founder's Day 5k fun run/walk is to raise funds for the George and Mary Washington Scholarship Fund at Centralia College.  All proceeds go towards this local scholarship, in honor of our founders.  The course will be along the boundaries of the property that they originally owned and then donated to the city.  It starts at Centralia College and finishes at Washington Park.

The race begins promptly at 8am, so please arrive early to get your bib number and free t-shirt.  The streets will be blocked off for race and you are permitted to go around to park in the parking lot on Centralia College BLVD between rock st. and oak st.  

We work very hard to ensure proper timing and will have times posted on the website after the race.  

Medals will be handed out at the end of the race so stick around afterwards!!!  We give out medals for top finishers, and first and second in each age bracket.  

We have volunteers at every corner and every major road crossing to ensure your safety and that no one gets lost.  There is also a water table at the haIfway mark, please stay hydrated!!  If you have any questions feel free to contact the race director, Jenny Becker, at 360-736-5898 or email
